Nike Gakou Flyknit DIY

 

In 2015, Nike released the Air Max Zero, the realization of Tinker Hatfield’s first Air Max sketch from 29 years before, that later evolved into the Air Max 1. This year, the NikeLab Zoom Fly SP represented the early prototype phase of Breaking2 footwear, with added design features to show how the innovative Zoom Vaporfly 4% developed.

As Nike designers have worked on applying Flyknit to the uppers of Nike footwear icons, including the Air Force 1, Air Max 1, Presto and others, they’ve learned the ins and outs of Flyknit programming to maintain shape, paneling and the overall identities of these recognizable, beloved silhouettes. One prototype emerged and stuck with the Special Projects design team — a sock-like shoe with suede on the heel and a Nike Free-inspired, flexible sole. It had the DNA of the Nike Aqua Sock and Sock Racer but stood on its own — so much so that the shoe was given an official release and named the Nike Gakou Flyknit.

Instead of deciding where the Swoosh would be on the shoe, the designers decided to create rubber stencils, allowing consumers to personalize the shoe on their own. This is the first time Nike has provided stencils for at-home footwear customization.” – NIKE

The Nike Gakou Flyknit will be available in white and black options starting August 24 on Nike+, nike.com and at select retailers.

Nike SB Blazer Mid QS “Lance Mountain”

“Lance Mountain’s take on the Blazer blends past inspiration and what’s to come. The left shoe’s heel reads “78” for the year the legend first laid eyes on the Blazer, the shoe worn by his childhood heroes. That era also saw Mountain make his own foray into pool skateboarding, represented by the tile-like debossing. A nod to the tri-colored concert posters that inspired Mountain’s graphic work throughout his career, seen through the prism-fade details standing out against black suede. It all culminates in “17” on the right heel for the present—and Mountain’s ongoing love of it all.” – NIKE

Texas A&M x Adidas Unveil Special Edition “Bright Lights” Alternate Football Uniforms

 

Texas A&M and adidas has unveiled the “Bright Lights” Primeknit alternate football uniform, which will be worn by the Aggies on Saturday, October 28 versus Mississippi State at Kyle Field.

adidas and Texas A&M Athletics set out to collaboratively design and create a first for the brand and a first for the Aggies that would be at the forefront of design and innovation and provide players with the perfect blend of style and technology.

Inspired by the speed, ferocity and clean look of supercars, the “Bright Lights” Primeknit alternate football uniform is centered around an all-maroon theme with black accents. The jerseys are highlighted with the Texas A&M moniker on the chest and white numbers that are emblazoned with reflective embellishments to shine under the bright lights of the stadium. Additionally, the dual-color maroon and black pants feature a reflective Texas A&M logo on the left leg. Stripping the jersey down to the essentials to reduce weight like a high-performance car, the stripes have been removed to create an all-new look for the Aggies.

 

Capping off the theme is a HydroSkin® helmet from Hydro Graphics Inc. (HGI) that features a supercar style iridescent paint job with a clear-coat finish that fades from maroon to black and is highlighted with chrome Texas A&M logos on the sides. This innovative feature seamlessly blends two colors to create the appearance that the helmet is transforming colors when seen from different angles and with different lighting.

 

Additional design details include matching maroon and black adizero 5-Star 5.0 gloves, embossed with an oversized white, reflective graphic of the Texas A&M logo on the inside of the gloves. The adizero 5-Star 5.0 gloves feature 4-way stretch mesh for compression fit and GripTack for consistent control in all weather conditions. To complete the head-to-toe look, the team will be powered by matching maroon adizero and FREAK cleats with color coordinated accent colors.
